Apparently Holland is in Sweden checking on some players - including Dick Axelsson and Daniel Larsson whose rights still belong to Detroit. He's also checking on people like Fabian Brunnström, Linus Videll and Linus Klasen who could develop into solid NHLers. Linus Klasen is a bit on the small side (5'8'') but Linus Videll is 6'3'' and Fabian Brunnström is 6'1'' and the latter two are producing solid numbers for their respective teams.

The rest of the article is pretty much uninteresting (Linky). They just mention that they're checking on these 5 players to see how they're developing and how they'd fit in Detroit. Also Håkan Andersson says that they must sign the two Djurgården prospects, Dick Axelsson and Daniel Larsson, as they otherwise lose first rights.

Kudos to Teeman for the Sig

Sounds great to me. Sign all 3 and bring them to North America. The griffins can use some help.

Well to be honest both Brunnström and Videll could probably do quite well in Detroit though I doubt they'd get any ice-time. Brunnström might be difficult to sign but perhaps they could get a hold of Videll...

Depends to if they even want to play in the NHL at all.some are content to stay home and finish their careers. Plus if Detroit were to try and get all 3 if would be a process. Maybe get one next year and another the following year.

You know what would be fun - Videll and Ryno on the same line... If they learn to throw their size around it could be real fun...

Seeing as we've had 1 first round draft pick in the last 4 years, this seems like a great idea

Do some research on our prospects.

Go back and make a list of all of the Americans we should've taken with our picks then. The only one I can think of is Stastny.

You're right, you can take the s***ty ones in the following rounds after the good ones have been taken in the 1st.

This Brunnstrom guy sounds like the real deal... don't know anything about the other two though.

Don't even bring that up. That move absolutely kills me. They could have drafted a big, tough, stay at home defenseman with the potential to put up points and be an all around force, but instead draft yet another completely offensive minded defenseman. They already have Kindl for that role, so what exactly was the point of drafting Smith?

Ok, I'm done...

That's why Kenny is the GM.
